Something Hidden Between The Trees – BY THE SPIRITS Signs Worldwide Deal With Eisenwald

By The Spirits is a folk project hailing from the mystic woods of the Lower Silesian region near the ancient Ślęża mountain in Poland. Founded in 2016, the solo-artist Michał Krawczuk created a remarkable catalog and played over 40 shows through out Europe. 

The essence of BY THE SPIRITS is to create folk-inspired music and lyrics telling stories about the connections between man and nature, the spirituality within, love and death.

In order to celebrate the new pact, our partner House of Inkantation prepares a complete sonic revision of all recordings which were done before and after their full-length release. 

More information to be announced soon.
